The Shape of the Liturgy

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

"Dom Gregory Dix's classic account of the development of the Eucharistic rite is far more than an archaeological study. He clothes his massive scholarship in lively and absorbing language for all who would understand their worship in the framework from which is has evolved. He demonstrates the creative force of historic Christianity through liturgy and the societies it has moulded. His great work is constantly being quoted for its devotional as well as its historical value, and every year it finds a host of new readers. Rigidly scientific in method, it has been written for the ordinary reader in non-technical language. The results of critical study, buried in the learned periodicals of half-a-dozen countries, are sifted and arranged to present for the first time a clear picture of the development of the Eucharistic rite."

Book in very good condition with some foxing on the page edges due to age.
